In the new subversive comedy, No Pants in Tucson, The Anthropologists’ draw upon blatantly bigoted state laws from the 19th and 20th centuries that made it illegal for women to wear pants in public. With a creative and producing team of women, non-binary, and transgender artists, they excavate historical newspaper articles, legal text, and photographic archives to unmask the real lives impacted by these archaic laws.
